Adios Winter

As we say goodbye to winter today I thought it would a good time to post an update. This family blog of mine that has been in existence for more than a half a decade, is sort of collecting cobwebs. As days fly by I am constantly thinking about things that I could be sharing on this site, but I never get around to it. Part of the reason is I still don’t feel the same about blogging here as I did when I had my personal blog that pretty much only my online friends knew about. I feel sort of stuck here in the middle between a personal blog and a family website. Different people are reading this than were reading my personal blog and I have to take that into consideration.

Being stuck in the middle is sort of the trend here lately. Many of you reading this are on Facebook and as you know Facebook has sort of changed the blogosphere. Many of my friends haven’t been writing at their blogs either because it is so much easier to post quick little tidbits on Facebook or even Twitter. I often post things about movies I’ve seen, books I’ve read, or something funny that has happened with the kids.

I am going to try to start sharing daily happenings again and see where it leads. My old personal blog is due for renewal and I am still debating if I should sell it to a gal that wants the domain name or keep it for myself in case I feel like I need it again someday. I am leaning more towards the idea that, sure this is a family website, but it is written by me and I should just be me…no holding back.

A few pictures from the past couple of months….

Blake, eating something?

Andrew played basketball for a community ed team. It was his first time playing basketball. It was quite entertaining. He plays a bit too aggressive and had many fouls called against him. Last game he got thrown out. Now he says he might try out for basketball in 9th grade… oh boy.Andrew's Basketball Team

Lots of posts coming soon. Pictures of our kitchen/family room remodel, my thoughts on the new iPad, and more!

    Candi! I enjoyed the update! I am in the same situation as you. As you know I have been blogging for 11 years this year on our family but this year I have really started sharing my passions and include the family as well but not on every post. I have lost readers, mainly family. Probably because they are not agreeing with what I am interested in or maybe because they just want to see pics of the kids everyday. Just like you, I have facebook but my blog is my journal and my outlet. So open up, be yourself! I’m looking forward to it!!
    Great pics by the way! Can’t wait to see the remodel!!

    I don’t think you should feel bad about writing out your thoughts! Write what you want and if someone doesn’t want to read it, they can get to steppin’ (or surfin’)! LOL
    I love your stories and pictures!

    Love and miss ya!!
